It was really bad. He should have been chucked.

I am sure he meant to spear him in the chest which is still brutal. It really isn't about what you meant to do in terms of this. It was a dirty play and he should sit for however long they give him. That was hot garbage.

That's definitely not what happened.


Dumb play by a player who isn't dirty, but greater punishment is required.

Should be 5+ games, easily. I basically never wish for a guy to get their ass kicked, but he deserves it for that. The deliberation that has to go into a play like that is sickening.

Context is Spurgeon cross checked him, prob should have been 2. But its a check that happens 50 times a game. Nyquist went off the rail.

Wasn't trying to hit him in the face? He looked and aimed his stick to the face! Completely intentional act all the way through.

The angle from the other side of the zone is just awful. You can see him turn and raise his stick, and he's looking at Spurgeon the entire time. He meant to do that.

What was he trying to do there? Scare the little bird that happened to fly around Spurgeon's head?

Indefensible. Deserves multiple games. He clearly snapped and made poor judgement, but that is such a dangerous reaction. Could have altered a life.

I cant figure out whats worse... in previous years when players have used their sticks as a baseball bat and hit in the head or in this case using his blade and pretty much stab his face very hard

You know this how?

Gutless play. Should be at least 5 games.

I seriously doubt it, Spurgeon is a smaller guy, I think he came around to spear him and it went a little higher than he thought it would. It doesn't matter what he intended to hit spear wise as he intended to spear someone and needs to sit for whatever the punishment is.

Rarely do you see a stick to the face that looks any more intentional than that. Looked right at him and made a blatant, aggressive stab.

There is no timeline or reality in which even the most incompetent DOPS should settle on only one or two games for an attack like that.

No, he even intentionally turned his stick blade towards Spurgeon to make sure the blade got his face. He aimed it...completely intentional.

Even if I don't think that Nyquist would mean to spear someone in the face, there is literally nothing in this play that suggests he meant to do anything other than spear him in the face.
